Our router-modem decided to quit so we didn't have Internet. After hours on the phone, we were finally able to connect last night. What a relief!
I made this yummy and fairly healthy recipe:
I bought a package of lean Denver Cut steak on sale and decided to BBQ in a slow-cooker. Season meat with favorite spices (I just used salt-pepper). Some people pre-bake first, to remove fat. I just cooked in a slow cooker on high for a couple of hours, until there was lots of liquid. Drain the liquid and cover meat with your favorite BBQ sauce. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or until meat is tender. It was delicious and, because I started with a lean cut and then drained most of the fat, I think it was fairly healthy, too.
We enjoyed it with a simple salad -- lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, salt/pepper, and olive oil (just drizzle for taste).
